WÜSTHOF Classic Ikon knives feature a distinctive, double bolster design for professional-style heft, exceptional balance and beauty. The handle is made of a highly durable synthetic material — Polyoxymethylene (POM) — which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The elegant shape of the handle is designed for a comfortable grip. The Classic Ikon 5" Boning Knife is ideal for removing bones from pork, beef or chicken. The long narrow curved blade enables the knife to move cleanly along the bones for clean cuts.
